I have a small library of games, and there are a couple of out of print games that I would like to trade for. Unfortunately I seem to end up with options like my Get Bit! for someone's Mystery of the Abbey. Is there any acceptable method of sweetening the deal with a limited library?

Try a math trade. There happens to be one running right now.

This! DO IT!



Edit: Let me add that a Math Trade (MT) is not going to neccesarily get you THE game you want in exchange for the game you're offering. It will give you A game you want for the game you are offering.

So if you have a grail game you are looking for, an out of print expensive game, you need to put up a trade that is likely to get into that bracket of offerings. (That can be a package lot or a game of equal value or interest).

Just, whatever you do, don't put anything on your "Want that" list if you don't really. You'll get it.
